About Daniel Hasselschwert

We truly believe Otter Rock is a little slice of heaven on earth, come and visit and you will see why we feel this way.

Daniel Hasselschwert purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Daniel Hasselschwert chose Coastal Oregon

This is the most beautiful place on the planet, seriously. Add in the fact that it is quiet, private, out of the wind and a lot sunnier and warmer than most places on the Oregon coast and you will see for your self this place is amazing.

What makes this cabin unique

Watching the surfers, kayakers, whales and all that happens on the beach from your comfortable perch up above. Or a short walk to join them!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

It was a great night, hot tub on a cliff looking out over the beach. What more can you ask for?

Not a cabin. More like an outhouse with a view.

  • 1 of 5

Dog hair on bedding when we arrived.

We can't figure out why we were charged so much for this place. Maybe $60-80 would be more appropriate.

Prior reviews led us to think it would be acceptable but we don't feel good about spending so much here.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear the Surf Shack did not meet your expectations. Based on your comments I assume you thought the price indicated some level of high end finishes that are most definitely not advertised. We call it a "Shack" because it is a simple rustic cabin. The ocean frontage and views are unbeatable and the hot tub creates a space and experience unparalleled in this area. For these reasons the Surf Shack has a 80+ % occupancy year round and great reviews, as you mentioned. From time to time we do have guests, like yourself, who do not prefer the rustic simplicity of the cabin and anticipate a more traditional hotel/motel style lodging. It appears the Surf Shack was simply not a good fit for you. Dan

Beautiful location but random problems

  • 3 of 5

The land is so beautiful with a spectacular view. The hot tub was really nice. However, the shower would not stay constantly warm. It would fluctuate between boiling and freezing. The tv also would not work no matter what we did. There was also barely any silverware there. No forks etc....

Rustic with Spectacular views

  • 2 of 5

The ocean views were spectacular from this hillside "shack." And it is a great location in a quiet neighborhood. However, we changed our minds about spending the night after we arrived -- too rustic for us. The listing does mention a composting toilet so no false advertising there - I just didn't realize how much a composting toilet smells and how full it gets. We couldn't stay at a place where we were unable to use the bathroom facilities. Also, this rental was not good value for the money -- for the fee we paid, I would have expected updated accommodations. Again, no false advertising there as it is aptly called a shack!!! The owner had no problem refunding the cleaning fee when asked, as we did not touch or use anything on the property. I rated it two stars because there was no false advertising. If the nightly fee had been half as expensive, I would have given three stars.

Camping at the Surf Shack

  • 5 of 5

The Surf Shack is luxury camping at it's best. The views are out of this world, and if you plan to surf at Otter Cove then it doesn't get any more convenient. My partner and I stayed over Labor Day weekend and had sunny amazing weather most of the weekend. Eat/Surf/Hot tub/Sleep Repeat! Here's the deal, if you like to be outside then this is the place for you. The hot tub, kitchen, and living room are all outdoors! The small room is cozy and perfect for 2 to sleep. Everything was clean and ready for us to use when we arrived. And, as stated the composting toilet smells bad. So, if you've got a weak stomach for that kind of thing this isn't the place for you. As we were surfing all weekend we just hosed off outside and used the hot tub in place of showering over the weekend as the shower is also in the room with the toilet.

Things we brought to make this trip super enjoyable for ourselves: our own cooking supplies and dinnerware, a cooler to store our beer and food (there is a mini-fridge too), our own food/spices/cooking oils, 2 camp-style chairs, and lanterns because there is not sufficient outdoor lighting (though we purchased some large bulb holiday lights and left them there for the next folks to use).

Oh- And our dog loved being here with us as well!
